Pop Up Flower Card

I just got this die and had to give it a try and then liked it so much I bought this flower .svg  like this to use also.  It is easier and faster to cut on the machine as I can cut all pieces at once whereas a die I have to cut one piece at a time.  I love my new cut file.   What a beautiful flower it makes!  I can't wait to try it with some really pretty paper as this was just my first go at it, but I think it is pretty.  Can't wait to use this one again!  


Bunny Box

I had purchased this cute little bunny box awhile ago from My Scrap Chick.  I love their boxes as they are so easy to assemble and super cute to give as a little gift.  Since we were in quarantine, I decided to make these little bunnies to put in my kids Easter baskets to make them look a little more festive.  I also made some cute little frogs and I had some Easter eggs on sticks that I had intended to put on a wreath, but was so glad that I had them on hand.  As it was, their Easter baskets turned out so super cute and they didn't feel bad at all on Easter morning.  I know that isn't the real meaning of Easter, but it is fun to have a little something just for fun after we talk about why we truly celebrate the season.

Valentine's Box Card


Lookie how sweet!  I bought this Valentine's Box Card from LoriWhitlock's shop and decided to make one for my family for Valentine's Day.  Here is my first one.  I have a few more to make.  So much fun though.  What a cute card.  It folds flat for mailing so I will make one for my Mom also. Valentine's Anything new

Thinking of you square pull through card with hearts

I just love this card.  I had been wanting to make this card but hadn't.  Sadly, I have a friend who just lost her husband and I wanted to make something special for her to know she is loved.  I stayed up late one night making this card.  I love how it turned out.  It makes such a statement.   She loved it!  What a fun card.   Just wish it had been for a happier occasion. square card

Christmas Eve Layout 2015


This is my version of  project life.  I am so far behind on Christmas pages that I decided to try to make a simplified version of my normal layouts.   It worked and I completed at least one set of my Christmas photos.   I have 2015 through 2019.  Because there are so many "events and traditions" at Christmas, I actually dread getting started on them because it takes so long.  I do the same with vacation photos knowing that they will take forever.  I think that I will do a cover page and then finish them like these.  Simple and fairly fast to put together.  Yeah.  Now I just need time to do more of them.  Thanks for the challenge to get at least one done!
